Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your problem of pain at the base of the 2nd toe, that you are a dancer and that there is no swelling, no lump.
The commonest cause of such a problem is fascitis or tenosynovitis.
I would advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon:
The reason being you are a dancer and you need the correct diagnosis and treatment.
- He shall give you an anti-inflammatory medicines and supportive splints if need be.
- Another option is intra-lesional steroid.
-Third option is to do hot fomentation in a warm concentrated saline (common salt) solution.
This will cure your problem and you will be ready for the next performance.
